Why We Love It

An RHS Award winner (no biggy).

'Caeruleum' features globes of small blue flowers, which will last throughout summer.

The perfect pollinator, 'Caeruleum' are great for planting in groups, on borders, or for naturalising (as they flower for year after year).

Ideal for cut and dried flowers and pollinator friendly to boot.

Alliums will grow in a wide range of soils provided there is good drainage. They like sunshine but the flowers will last longer in partial shade.

Valuable for planting in groups in borders or for naturalising (flowering for year after year).

Plant taller varieties to the rear of borders. Flowers can be used for dried arrangements.

Planting Calendar

Plant in September, October, November.

Flowers in May, June.
